Started with a Johnny Storm / Human Torch (RIP) removed the flames and pulled his head. Then got an actual 8-ball from 1 of those smaller sets. Drill a hole an mounted it on Johnny, painted with Testors paint and sealed. Made the pool cue from a paint brush. Comments and suggestions welcomed, thanks Lee
The man who would later become 8-Ball was born in Duluth, Minnesota. A former defense contractor who designed missile propulsion systems, Jeff Hagees took to playing pool to relieve the stress of his job. He soon amasses large gambling debts, which arouses the suspicion of his employers, who thought he was giving away company secrets to raise money to pay off his debts. Although they had no proof, Hagees' employers fired him. Combining his love of pool with his engineering talents, he fashions a criminal identity for himself as 8-Ball, inventing his cue stick weapons, and engaging in a highly successful crime spree in New York with his gang. In one of his costumed robberies, he faces the alien Sleepwalker, who demands to know what he was doing. Sleepwalker had the battle won and nearly captured 8-Ball for the police, until Rick Sheridan (the human to whom Sleepwalker is bonded) woke up. The alien is forced back into Rick's mind. 8-Ball escaped.
